Are you ready to ramp up your results? I hope so because today and the rest of this month I’m focusing on the TOP ACTIONS you can take to 10x your results …
 
… even (especially!) if you’re stuck in a plateau.
 
Basically, a plateau is when your results stall out and you stop seeing the progress you saw when you first started your program.
 
Nearly EVERYONE goes through a plateau from time to time. It’s not a fun place to be - but the good news is that if you DO experience one (or are in one right now), there are a few key things to pay attention to...
 
1. You Are “Kinda-Sorta” Following Your Program.
Have you started to slack on your plan? Be honest! This is one of the top causes of plateaus and it’s a good sign to shake things up with new recipes, workouts, or injecting some more FUN into the mix!
 
2. Your Body is Used to Your Workouts/Plan.
This is another top cause of plateaus! The good news is this means you’re fitter/healthier. It also means it’s time to (safely) challenge your body in a different way.
 
Regular updates to your plan is going to be KEY to your success! A great coach can help you quickly identify small tweaks to fire up your results again.
 
3. Hormones, Stress, Sleep Deprivation, and More. Your body isn’t a machine! It’s an incredibly complex organism that functions best when it’s in balance.
So many things can throw it out of balance, from being overtired to overstressed and even undernourished and overworked.
 
4. You’re Not REALLY In a Plateau (Part 1). If you only rely on the scale to track your results, you’re missing out!
Your body could actually be changing in a big way EVEN if the scale doesn’t move. That’s why it’s important to measure other things - like the percentage of body fat or circumference measurements. This is why we have a top of the line InBody 570 body scanner for all of our members to use at CrossFit Caloundra.
 
5. You’re Not REALLY In a Plateau (Part 2). If you’re struggling to lose those “last 2-3 kilos,” you might be at a weight that’s healthy and natural for your body.
Losing those kilos can take extra effort – as can keeping them off once you hit your goal.
 
I hope this list helps you rev up your results.
 
The fastest and surest way to get – and keep – your momentum going is to work with an experienced coach with a tried & tested program. They’ll be able to make adjustments as you need to make sure you stay on track with your goals to get the results you’re looking for!
 
I’ve helped hundreds of people over the years get the results they’ve wanted. It’s why I do what I do!
